I Don’t Want…

I don’t want more food poisoning
From trying “Lobster Fests”;
And I could skip with gladness
Any future prostate tests

I do not care for trips
To North Dakota in the winter;
And please don’t make me run a race
I’m no Olympic sprinter

I hate to find at airports
That my flight was overbooked;
Or order pasta for a meal
And find it overcooked

I think I could go on all day
And not, at last, be through:
There are so many types of things
I never want to do

(From this prompt, “Kick The Bucket”.)
